A Tale of Two Murders: Joran Van der Sloot Charged with Murder of Stephany Flores … Beth Holloway Says, “God bless the Peru authorities for handling this thoroughly and professionally”

Call it a tale of two crimes and the tale of how two countries handled the same crime in complete contrast manners. One country lets a sociopath loose on the rest if society to kill again, the other one rightfully charges him with murder and cages the criminal protecting society.

“It was the best of times (Peru), it was the worst of times (Aruba), it was the age of wisdom (Peru), it was the age of foolishness (Aruba), it was the epoch of belief (Peru), it was the epoch of incredulity (Aruba), it was the season of Light (Peru), it was the season of Darkness (Aruba), it was the spring of hope (Peru), it was the winter of despair (Aruba), we had everything before us (Peru), we had nothing before us (Aruba), we were all going direct to Heaven (Peru), we were all going direct the other way (Aruba) –in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good (Peru) or for evil (Aruba), in the superlative degree of comparison only.”

What Aruba could not, would not and never intended to do, Peru saw fit to accomplish at all cost. In Aruba they death with the death and disappearance of an American tourist Natalee Holloway where one of the suspects was a “little Dutch boy” of privilege. In Peru they dealt with the death of a 21 year old local from a prominent family. The common denominator … Joran Van der Sloot. Aruba has never charged Joran Van der Sloot with murder. Conversely, Peru has properly pursued Van der Sloot and charged the “Sporter” with murder. Sadly, had Aruba done their job, charged and convicted Joran Van der Sloot instead of enabling him,  Joran would never have been able to travel to Peru and kill again.

In a People magazine interview, Beth Holloway, the mother of Natalee Holloway, who has dealt with endless frustration, cronyism and corruption in Aruba said about the murder charges against Van der  Sloot by Peru authorities, “God bless the Peru authorities for handling this thoroughly and professionally.”

With no justice yet for her own daughter, Beth Holloway cautiously cheered yesterday’s decision by authorities in Peru to bring murder charges against Joran van der Sloot – long suspected in Natalee Holloway’s disappearance – for the murder last year of a young woman in Peru.

Robyn Gardner Missing in Aruba … New Witness Disputes Gary Giordano’s Claims that they Went Snorkeling Day She Disappeared

Robyn Gardner has been missing in Aruba since August 2, 2011. Her travel companion Gary Giordano’s told Aruba police that she went missing while they were snorkeling near Baby Beach.  However, according to the LE Giordano’s stories have been inconsistent. Giordano is presently being held in an Aruba jail as a suspect in the disappearance of Robyn Gardner.

According to a new witness who has come forward, they dispute the story that Gary Giordano has told regarding the fact that the two went snorkeling. The witness says that he was fishing the day that Giordano claims that he and Gardner were snorkeling. He states that the two walked on the beach, but never went into the water.

The witness says he was fishing on a beach on that day and he saw the two take a walk along the reef around 4 p.m., but they never went in the water.

A short time later, the couple drove away and he never saw either of them again, the witness says.

“If this witness ends up being accurate and correct as to locations of both Mr. Giordano and Ms. Gardner, it’s yet another piece of evidence that’s inconsistent with his story,” said ABC News consultant Brad Garrett, a former FBI agent.

Snake on a Plane: Passenger Steals $238,000 By Crawling Through Airplane Bathroom

Its a cross between “Snakes on a Plane, ”Shawshank Redemption” and “Catch me if You Can” … , but in real life.


A man pretending to be sick, went to the bathroom aboard a plane, tears apart the toilet, sneaks into the cargo hold, and steals  $238,000. An ambulance arrived at the tarmac to meet the man, who suddenly stated he felt better. The result, the man walked out of the airport without having to go through the normal security checks.

An ingenious thief swiped almost $250,000 on a flight in the Caribbean after sneaking into the cash-laden cargo hold via the restroom, police said Thursday.

A Brink’s security employee placed three sacks of cash containing a total $1.6 million in the hold of the Air Antilles plane before it headed from the French island of Guadeloupe to the Franco-Dutch island of Saint Martin.

 Think this was not an inside job?

Beth Holloway on Natalee Holloway Missing in Aruba: “There is no good answer, whether it is Natalee or whether it isn’t. But no answer at all is the most unbearable”

A mothers endless and tiresless search for answers …

Beth Holloway has been waiting for answers as to the disappearance of her daughter Natalee Holloway since she went missing in Aruba in 2005. No one has been more persistent, more engaged, more undaunted and more eager to hold Aruba, Holland and Joran Van der Sloot’s feet to the fire in her effort to get answers and “JUSTICE” for Natalee Holloway.

It has been a roller-coaster ride of emotions ever since Natalee Holloway went missing in Aruba in 2005 when Natalee was last seen leaving Carlos n’ Charlies at closing with Joran Van der Sloot, Deepak Kalpoe and Satish Kalpoe. Following that fact of evidence the family of Natalee Holloway has received nothing but continues lies, questionable investigations, shoddy police work and obstruction from Aruba. 

Now suddenly, over five years later there may be a break in the case of missing and presumed murdered Natalee Holloway. After all the searches in Aruba on land, in the ponds, in the landfills and in the ocean … a jawbone has been discovered on the beach near the Divi Aruba Phoenix Beach Resort. Since the discovery, the news has been released by the Aruba prosecutors office that the bone is that of a young woman, now the focus shifts to whether it actually belongs to that of Natalee Holloway.

The revelation that the jawbone belongs to a young woman has lead to Natalee’s mother to release the following statement:

“There is no good answer, whether it is Natalee or whether it isn’t. But no answer at all is the most unbearable. We appreciate everyone’s loving care and concern and are anxious about the developments.”

Joran Van der Sloot Admits Extorting Money From Holloways to get back at Natalee Holloway’s Parents

Joran Van der Sloot just admitted to felony extortion … Always the victim, Joran Van der Sloot admits extortion out of revenge.

Talk about sick …

In an interview with Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, the accused killer of 21 year old Peruvian Stephany Flores, Joran Van der Sloot has admitted to extorting money from the family of Natalee Holloway in order to get back at them.  Joran Van der Sloot admitted to extorting money from the Holloway family in return for revealing the location of Natalee Holloway’s body. Van der Sloot has already been indicted in the United States on extortion charges.

Don’t think that Joran’s extortion admission of getting even with Beth, Dave, Jug, Paul and the rest of Natalee Holloway’s family was not done with the following timing in mind? Do not forget, 5 years ago on Labor Day weekend, Aruba under the cloak of darkness of the Holiday weekend released Joran Van der Sloot from jail. Conveniently enough, Aruba also released the Kalpoes as well.  Do not think for one second that Joran Van der Sloot did not plan to do this interview to once again get back at Natalee’s parents and add grief to Beth’s pain  (Beth’s Pain pt 2)on the anniversary of his getting out of jail. No different than it was a coincidence that Joran Van der Sloot murdered Stephany Flores on the 5 year anniversary of the disappearance of Natalee.

Full Dutch interview HERE.

The Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf quoted Joran van der Sloot as confessing to taking money from the family of the teenager in return for revealing the location of her body. He was indicted in the U.S. in June for extortion after being caught in an FBI sting, though the place he indicated as her burial site site turned out to be bogus.

Holloway was last seen alive with him on the Caribbean resort island of Aruba in 2005, and he has publicly said he killed her and then retracted his confession several times.

“I wanted to get back at Natalee’s family — her parents have been making my life tough for five years,” the paper quoted him as saying from prison in Peru. “When they offered to pay for the girl’s location, I thought: ‘Why not’?”

Joran Van der Sloot, always the victim even when caught on tape pretending to be locked out of the hotel room with a murdered Stephany Flores inside

So Natalee’s parents have been making his life tough for five years. Small consolation when one considers NATALEE HOLLOWAY HAS NO LIFE!!!

So once again Joran Van der Sloot is the victim and blames the family of Natalee Holloway why he tried to extort money from them. It was because the Holloway’s made Joran’s life difficult following the disappearance and death of Natalee Holloway. The fact that Joran Van der Sloot and the Kalpoe brothers were the last people ever seen with Natalee Holloway after leaving Carlos n’ Charles in Aruna in 2005, the fact that they originally lied as to leaving her off at the Holiday Inn and implicated two black security guards in Natalee’s disappearance is irrelevant.

On multiple occasions Joran Van der Sloot has admitted killing Natalee Holloway and on other occasions admitted to kidnapping her and selling her.

We are now witness to this punk Joran Van der Sloot to being involved in the death and disappearance of Natalee Holloway. Van der Sloot has been indicted and charged with the murder of 21 year old Stephany Flores. Joran has also been indicted in the United States on extortion.

However, in this sociopath’s mind … he is the victim and extorted the family of Natalee Holloway out of revenge.

How long will it be before Joran Van der Sloot recants his extortion confession when he realizes it can be used against him? The next news story will be Jooran Van der Sloot going back on his jail house confession, much like he did with his confession to the murder of Stephany Flores. My guess is Joran, the Little Dutch boy” will claim that he did not understand the Dutch reporter and needed a translator, even though he is fluent in Dutch.

Raid at Foxy Lady on Aruba’s “One Happy Island” due to Human Trafficking … Joran Van der Sloot, Thailand, Human Trafficking … Hmm?


You will not see the following reported or discussed in the travel brochures on why to visit Aruba. Why is that? No where on the Aruba Tourism web site does it reference, things to do in Aruba like partaking in going to a strip club made up of  human trafficking. What about fun in the sun, weddings and restricting individuals of their human rights?  Shouldn’t tourists know exactly what they are getting themselves into when they spend their hard earned money on a vacation?


Rather than just painting just a rosy picture, shouldn’t Aruba and the Aruba AHATA have some truth in advertising that bad things happen there, NATALEE HOLLOWAY, and continued to due so, HUMAN TRAFFICKING.

What, you mean there is crime on Aruba like human trafficking, say it isn’t so. Human trafficking on “One Happy Island”, never. Isn’t that nice to know that mere miles from the beaches that you visit with your families and streets that your wives and daughters walk that the the Foxy Lady was raided and arrests made as a result of human trafficking. As an aside, isn’t it peculiar that human trafficking be going on in Aruba andJoran Van der Sloot is suspected in doing the same in Thailand. Wonder where he learned his trade?

ORANJESTAD — The Public Prosecutor (OM) announced late yesterday afternoon that the raids and arrests at strip club Foxy Lady regarded an investigation into human trafficking. Supposedly, the strippers were forced to work long hours and were held against their will. [human rights alive and well in Aruba, not]

Scared Monkeys actually discussed the Foxy Lady back in 2009; however, since then the web site has been removed. Looks like some family fun for all, eh? How many tourists coming to Aruba for sun and fun on their white sandy beaches think this kind of debauchery is going on right under their noses?

Foxy Lady Aruba functions as a cocktail lounge and bar featuring a sophisticated menu of hors d’oeuvres, desserts, cigars, fine champagne, wines and liquors. During the day the club provides a variety of massages for men, women, and couples. The late night crowd is also in for a treat with nightly entertainment by our VIP foxies and special acts from around the world including world famous feature entertainers and adult film stars. The club also features one of a kind “confession booths” for those who are feeling a little sinful.

Bachelor and Bachelorette parties are a great sendoff for any bride or groom with several options including a variety of special performances by our international foxies. Also, tables in our VIP rooms can be reserved any time through one of our certified event sales representatives located in several convenient locations across the island.

In addition to the above features, Foxy Lady Aruba specializes in setting up special dates with our lovely escorts and planning unforgettable one-of-a-kind exotic vacations for singles and couples traveling to Aruba.

More from Amigoe – Aruba:

Justice is reckoning with a criminal organization and not precluding further apprehensions. At the time of going to press yesterday, the OM did not wish to elaborate on the facts of the raids and arrests from amongst others, manager Alex Mathew. In total, four persons were apprehended last night amongst whom also a police officer who worked as security guard at the strip club on his off days. How many strippers had been exploited, remains unknown for the time being.

Aruba Investigates Aruba … AG Says No Evidence Found that Alleged Relationship Between Chief Jan van der Straten & Van der Sloot Family Played a Negative role in the Investigation into the Disappearance of Natalee Holloway

File this one under and who is going to investigate the investigator? A cover up to the very end …

Aruban AG Rob Pietersz has stated that there was no evidence found that the former Aruba Chief of Police Jan van der Straten and his cronyism relationship with the Van der Sloot family played a negative role in the investigation into the disappearance of Natalee Holloway in 2005 in Aruba. Just curious, was there any evidence that the alleged relationship between former corps chief Jan van der Straten and the Van der Sloot-family played a “POSITIVE”  role in the investigation?


More from Aruba in Wonderland, where up is down and guilty is innocent

No evidence was found that the alleged relationship between former corps chief Jan van der Straten and the Van der Sloot-family played a negative role in the investigation into the disappearance of Natalee Holloway. Attorney General (PG), Rob Pietersz announced this yesterday afternoon.

Statements from former Minister of Justice Rudy Croes (MEP) at the end of 2008were reason for the Public Prosecutor (OM) to start a factual inquiry into the initial phase of the investigation regarding the disappearance of Holloway. According to Croes, Van der Straten had supposedly consciously hindered the investigation during the crucial initial phase. “However, the statements from Croes could not be proven,” says Solicitor General Taco Stein before the Amigoe“, nor did there appear to be a relationship between Van der Straten and Van der Sloot.”

No evidence, eh? It is amazing how easy it is to find no evidence when one wants to find no evidence. All we need to do is review the investigation of the disappearance of Natalee Holloway to prove the theory. I guess Dutch official Hero Brinkman was wrong as well when he stated that ARUBA WAS CORRUPT AS HELL.
